Thursday Doors: Raddon-du-Chapendu

A number of trips my s-i-l and I took while I was in France started out over the same roads and we turned at this spot several times before I asked my s-i-l to stop so I could take a couple of door shots.  Raddon-du-Chapendu is in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, but the only articles I can find about it are in either French or English, so I’m not including a link.  Sorry about that.  I love these very old buildings, doors, and doors within doors!

You can visit Norm’s blog to see the beautiful doors he features this week.  You’ll also find a blue link critter that will take you to the other door posts for the week.

    Love the “first floor” door. I guess it makes sense if there’s a hay wagon or something outside when it’s open. 🙂

    Interesting doors!!

    Welcome back – you were missed 🙂
    Nice finds. With the hay on the ground in front of them, I’m guessing these are from an active farm of some sorts?

    • Thanks, Norm. Just found you in my spam folder, but you’re now free to move about the comment section. 🙂 I believe you’re right about it being an active farm, although we didn’t see anyone about. A great many buildings are in use, even those that don’t appear to be in good enough shape to use.


  4. Is that a little heart-shaped hole in the last door, Janet?

  5. Great doors, and the heart is a bonus. 🙂

  6. The arched doorway… and the little heart… what attention to detail!

    • I really like that. So often now, everything is cookie cutter and nothing special. Of course, special tends to cost a lot these days, so I understand, but it makes me appreciate the details all the more. The arch is typical of this area.


  7. I love the little heart cut out, and the pop of pink flowers out front.

  8. Door-in-a-door is always a winner.

    Beautiful colors — lovely choices today, Janet.

    A door within a door (I think) and doors above doors…all pretty interesting, Janet.

    The little heart punch-out is a winner 🙂

    Welcome back in the USA! Your absence has been noted (in a good way) I realized that every time I we were in France, it was in the city, so I don’t know much of the rural landscape. My b-i-l once was panning to build his house there on the country side, but I don’t think it eve came to pass.

    • Thanks for the welcome back, Jesh. Most of my time in France has been spent in the country or in very small towns. I pass lots of doors, but usually on the road where we can’t stop. 😦 But it’s so much fun and I had a blast.

        Does this mean your French is at a conversational level? (I wished now I had payed more attention in school, but I choose English to be my favorite foreign language instead.)

      • Ha, my French is barely existent. Since I go so often, I really need to learn more, so this next year I’m going to work on it at least a bit. I studied German back in high school. That was a long time ago, but I have a bit more German than French.

    Nice shades of grey, especially with that hint of purple.

  14. Such a sweet little peep hole in this one! I guess that gives new meaning to the phrase “home is where the heart is.”
